2014 NFL Draft: Historical reality check on QBs
NFLDraftScout.com publisher Frank Cooney shares detailed analysis of all quarterbacks drafted this century, where they are now and what might become of the oddball class of 2014 which -- depending on whose voice you trust -- could be special or so-so.
Quarterbacks, quarterbacks, quarterbacks.
The NFL drafted 178 of them this century and there will be more than usual in the 2014 lottery that begins Thursday.
Despite -- or maybe because -- this draft does not have one, single quarterback who is a consensus best pick, more prospects than usual are being discussed this year as candidates to be the No. 1 QB and also as first-round and top-100 selections.
After years of study on some of these players, NFLDraftScout.com projects up to four will be taken in the first round, six in the top 100 and 17 in the entire draft. NFLDraftScout.com tracked hundreds of quarterbacks now draft eligible, and has ratings on the top 102, of whom, 65 will probably get at least an invite for an NFL tryout.
That is higher than normal. Since 2000, NFL drafts have averaged 2.5 quarterbacks in the first round, five in the top 100 and 13 per draft.
The top three candidates to be the first quarterback selected this year are Central Florida's burly Blake Bortles, Texas A&M's magical Johnny Manziel, and Louisville's reliable Teddy Bridgewater. Still, some NFL scouts believe Fresno State's Derek Carr may be most NFL-ready. He is a fifth-year senior whose older brother went No. 1 overall to the Texans only a dozen drafts ago, and is now a free agent.
So they are all first-round possibilities.
Pittsburgh's strong-armed Tom Savage and Eastern Illinois' intriguing Jimmy Garoppolo are second-round projections and finish off NFLDraftScout.com's quarterback candidates within the top 100 picks.
While these are well-discussed names today, some of them will soon fade into football obscurity and other, less-discussed players may jump into the limelight.
It is simply the way it is, remember?
